EV releases the RCM-28 module with OMNEO networking technology
March 26, 2013
The RCM-28 module is the first EV product to support the new OMNEO media networking architecture. Tour Grade series amplifiers with RCM-28 modules installed can be integrated into OMNEO networks of up to 100 other devices that operate over standard Ethernet with standardized protocols.
“Electro-Voice is pleased to present the newest enhancement for Tour Grade power amplifiers”
- Integrated audio networking and control over CAT5
- DSP equivalent to one channel of Dx46, including FIR-Drive
- Audio networking compatible with any Dante device
- Control network compatible with OCA protocol
- Ultra-low latency
- Works in any TG amplifier
In addition to a complete library of audio processing functions, the RCM-28 can implement FIR-Drive filtering. Interfaces include two RJ-45 ports for the OMNEO network and four freely configurable GPIO control ports (2 x GPI, 2 x GPO).
“With OMNEO, we are offering our customers the possibility of using fully standardized media networks within which not only Electro-Voice equipment but also the products of a variety of other manufacturers can interact seamlessly with one another,” says Ethan Wetzell, Platform Strategist with Bosch Security Systems and Global Product Manager for DSP. “We are harmonizing our solutions with newly emerging standards such as AVB (Audio Video Bridging) in order to create a standardized Ethernet infrastructure for every possible type and size of application. In future, OMNEO will play a leading role in both system design and that of new products, so we are delighted to be presenting in the RCM-28 the first of many new OMNEO products.”
